The leader of the National Assembly and the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, does not want the state of the nation's education sector to show up at the National Assembly.

Unlike teachers that have been abandoned by the government without training and re-training, the Senate President is asking the National Assembly Commission to ensure that it upholds the training and re-training of the staff for the National Assembly to effectively deliver their legislative duties.

Dr. Saraki made the request at a meeting with officials of the National Assembly Service Commission on Wednesday.

"These are areas that we cannot compromise on, because it affects the output of the National Assembly," the Senate President wrote on his Facebook page after the meeting.
